    Default SunBlade 150 with IntraServer ITI-6200

    I try to get IntraServer card running with my SunBlade 150 on Solaris 9
    (08/03 with all patches) but did not succeed so far.

    I can see the devices when executing "show-devs" at ok-prompt and
    "probe-scsi-all" shows me the attached disks.

    But after reconfigure-reboot I still have no scsi devices in /dev/dsk.

    There are drivers for this card for older versions of SunOS. I tried
    this and got this on boot up:

    adapter will not be installed

    This driver seems not to work with Solaris 9.
    Also I read articles in this group saying, that adapters with chips like
    this one (LSI Logic 53C896) are supported by Solaris 9.

    What am I missing ?
    Is anybody out there who got this card running on a Sparc system with
    Solaris 9 ?

    You need to get the driver for it. You probably can download
    it from the manufacturer's web site.

    LSI Logic / IntraServer docs say, the driver is for Solaris 2.6 - 8.
    They also say, car is compatible with Solaris 9.

    So I guessed the special driver ist not needed, because solaris 9
    supports this adapters now.


    I've also sent a support request to LSI Logic to get this clear.

    I just got an update for the Fcode, Firmware and BIOS for this
    controller from them.
    I installed it and now the controller works !
    The error messages from the driver went away.
